Dublin critics are over the moon for 'Gravity'

Posted by · 11:27 am · December 20th, 2013

Greetings from Ireland — where, coincidentally enough, I touched down shortly before the Dublin Film Critics’ Circle announced their 2013 award winners. And an interesting list it is, too. Don’t look for “12 Years a Slave” here — only films released locally this year are eligible — but “Gravity” took Best Picture, Director and Cinematography. It’s the runner-up lists, however, where their individuality emerges: there are 10 or more in each category (the Irish have a funny way of counting ties, it seems), and choices range from “What Maisie Knew” for Best Picture to Brady Corbet in “Simon Killer” for Best Actor to “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints” for Best Cinematography. A refreshing change from the usual-usual. Full list after the jump; check out every group’s winners so far at The Circuit.
